Castle, USN For the men of TUTUILA and their families, the events recorded in this book cover the highlights of the past year's history of our ship, USS TUTUILA. A one year span has a special meaning for us. It is the exact length of time each of the men appearing in these pages spend in their Vietnam tour of duty. Many have kept charts to check off the days. There is even a reminder of those charts within this book. To count the days of separation from loved ones is understandable. It is especially understandable in the case of TUTUILA'S sailors who have marked oil' each of those days with a full measure of work and duty. The men this book records performed important necessary jobs everyday they were aboard. Each man, regardless of his division assignment, helped create and preserve TUTUILA'S "CAN-DO", E- ship reputation. You all met every new and difficult challenge that came to us. You manned the ship that "repaired", "restored" and "renewed", and kept the Navy's gun ships and craft ready for action. We missed some of the glamor experienced by other ships, but we made it possible for them to do the glamor jobs. You men of TUTUILA and your families have in this souvenir cruise book both the memories of the year past and a constant reminder that you did a hard and vital job well. You gave generously and patriotically of yourselves. For that, your ship, your Navy, your country and the Free World are, in some measure, in your debt forever. Ernest C. Castle
